Here’s a free set of Olympic sports symbol posters.
Each poster features a graphic symbol of the sporting event, the name of the sport and a photo of a piece of equipment used in that sport.
Great for decorating the Olympic classroom!
- Spot the Sport: Divide into teams. Each team attempts to guess the sport from the symbol alone. A correct guess wins the card.
- Sports Charades: Divide into teams. Place even piles of cards, face down, a distance from each team. On the command players race to the pile, turn over the top card and return to their team. Players then try to guess the mimed sport. As soon as it’s guessed the next player races to the pile. First team finished is the winner.
- Designing sports: Using the cards as a model, design symbols for other sports or events. Focus on clarity and how easily recognisable the sport is.
- Supersize Me: Make larger versions of the posters for a classroom display. Introduce enlarging techniques such as the grid or the pantograph for students to experiment with.
